Last Tuesday (28), Caixa Econômica Federal held the 2,730th Mega-Sena contest, with the expectation of a prize of R$75 million at stake. The numbers drawn were 07, 24, 29, 41, 46 and 60.

Unfortunately, no bettor was lucky enough to hit all six tens, which resulted in an accumulated prize for the next contest, reaching R$80 million.

Despite the absence of winners in the main bracket, 97 bets managed to match five numbers, guaranteeing each one a prize of R$39,704.60. In addition, the field was made by 5,209 bets, which received an individual prize of R$1,056.23.

How to play Mega-Sena and useful information

To participate in Mega-Sena, you must choose 6 to 20 numbers from the 60 available on the betting wheel.

Furthermore, there is the “Surpresinha” option, in which the system chooses the numbers automatically, and the possibility of competing with the same bet for multiple consecutive contests, known as “Teimosinha”.

Mega-Sena draws take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, offering the chance to win millions. The minimum bet value, with six numbers, is R$5.00, and the price varies depending on the number of numbers selected, influencing the chances of winning.

If there are no winners in a given prize range, the amount accumulates for the next competition in the same category. It is important to check the betting slip, as the prizes expire 90 days after the draw. Therefore, the amounts are allocated to the national treasury for investment in FIES.

To receive prizes, you can go to an accredited lottery outlet or Caixa Econômica Federal branches. Amounts above R$2,259.20 can only be redeemed at branches, upon presentation of specific documentation.

Pool and group betting options

Bolão Caixa allows players to place bets in groups, which the bettor himself or the lottery units can organize. The prize pools have a minimum price of R$15.00, with each share having a minimum value of R$6.00. This way, each pool can have a maximum of 100 odds and up to 10 bets per pool.

In short, Mega-Sena offers several game and prize options, offering an opportunity to compete for millionaire prizes as a group or individually.
